DDay T-1. Tmr, there will be an Occupymookie movemt by a certain crazy6002fanbeast.
So I'm hording pretty nuggets of everything else like a squirrel with her nuts. Painted Skin: The Resurrection trailer is looking so kickass gorgeous, so much better than the campy trying too hard posters. ChenKun+ZhouXun+ZhaoWei are reminding us why they r each C cinema's greatest happening megastar, lest we forget. They r not hinting on the fireworks of most awesome 3way chemistry in the movie proper, they r giving it to us every nanosecond of this 2 min trailer in our very face and our eyes know nth else to do but be held captive…. yet what to do when they share the screen?!?!!??!!??! dilemma dilemma dilemma!!!!
So….we'll have lesbians. Do it properly and I'll love. It's XZ and XW, there r no better C actresses that have the gravitas to do it and hold her own against her counterpart in the CP; if it's all empty tease, I hate milking just because Girl!Slash or any Slash is trendy.
We have a never more gorgeous and manly ChenKun. Wet. Fighting like a Hero. Dancing. Romancing a ZW. Kissing and doing other hot things with a ZX. I'm beyond grateful if he's doing any one of these. Here, we can be as greedy as our hearts r singing!
Juggling all these hats, mastering them all.
Need a moment? *no that's not my droolz on CK's face, but if u r asking: tmi yes, I have the same stream down my chin atvm.*
And another role CK is playin here? Teaching the up and comings a lesson…how they have sooo much work to do, if nay impossible: Have a FSF, being an out of place clown:
That's a lousy eyepalette cleanser.
Back to the feast, allow me to remind you, a few short months ago, we have THIS pretty CK already:
It calms me to know I'm not alone in my crazy visualizing this, a CK vs Leslie, in my head a thousand times:
Need a ChenKun recent interview with subs with clips of TONNES of his pretty body of work in it? Sharing is caring.
And last but not least, the trailer:
I was dazzled by the magnificence, but towards the end of the 2 min it hits me…this is Painted Skin? This should be Painted Skin, but nth is remotely telling me this has anything to do with the source folklore. C netizen is jabbing art direction is pirated fr Amano… I can see where they're coming from, because this can so be Final Fantasy: The Taiga (IF they would ever do a fantasy taiga). There is also comparisons with Lord of the Rings. *nod*. Huge doses of Green Snake? Most definitely. So it's more a beautiful chimera child of a lot of fantastics OTHER than its inspiration or what should be its inspiration: my most vivid first falling of Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio, and my eternal love. It is a pity, because I'm still sorely disappointed with the writing in PaintedSkin 2008, but the mega3some (frankly mostly ChenKun+ZhouXun…or tbvh the scenestealing ZX) is so memorable. Now it's like we bargained a second chance, but this is not even telling the Painted Skin story as we read it at all. I do not think the superficial is making the movie: the 3 stars REALLY REALLY working it in full gear will guarantee its awesome. A case of 'drawing legs on snakes', trust your stars when they r bringing their A+ game. You don't really need anything more than a sprinkle of salt and pepper on prime marbled ribeyes.
